The two Hungarians not only played music, they were themselves the music – in every nerve – down to their fingertips.

The Liszt Academy functions as both university and concert centre, and these two profiles mutually reinforce each other: students can take part in study projects that end up being enjoyed by the general public. The institution prepares students not only for a soloist career but orchestral work, too, so a key role goes to symphony and chamber orchestra projects. First-year students pursue string orchestra courses; this is their concert. Professors of both the Chamber Music Department and Music Theory Department took part in the training, arming the youthful musicians with practical and theoretical knowledge. Conductor for the evening is Péter Kováts, violinist, conductor and teacher at the Liszt Academy Chamber Music Department.
